The 27 kidnapped students of Kagara school along with three staff and 12 members of their families have finally regained freedom from armed bandits in Niger State.
The students of the boarding school were abducted by bandits who were dressed in military camouflage on February 17, 2021.
Chief Press Secretary to Niger state government, Mary Noel-Berje, said the students were released in the early hours of today (Saturday), but she hasn’t been informed officially.
Trying to play safe, she said: “I heard about the release but I have not been officially informed because there are still some challenges. It is when they finally arrive here in Minna and received by Governor Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello before we really believe and celebrate,” she remarked.
It’s reliably gathered that the abductees are on their way to Minna and should be in the Niger State capital in a couple of hours.
